About us

Electrostatic Solutions Ltd worked with ERA Technology Ltd in the CEC Brite Euram Project ELREC, developing new technology for electrostatic separation of packaging waste, especially;

  • plastics waste from Swedish  and Spanish MSW

  • plastics film and paper from UK MSW

  • paper grades from Greek waste papers

Materials can be separated by a variety of electrostatic properties.  This is finding new applications in recycling, but can also be used for a wide variety of applications. Some applications that have been demonstrated are;

  • plastics from papers

  • different types of papers

  • PE from PP

  • PVC from PET

  • fire retardent ABS from non- fr ABS

  • metals and plastics from cable scrap
